Create a Clip

In VIUTube, you can use the built in editor to create and export smaller clips of your own videos. Doing so will allow you to create multiple shorter videos using the same master file as the source.

  1. In your VIUTube My Media area, click on the video you wish to make a clip out of. 

  2. Click the ACTIONS button and select Launch Editor.

  3. On the Timeline of your video, drag the progress bar to the location where you would like your clip to begin.

  4. Click the Split button (scissors icon).

  5. Click the Delete key on your keyboard or the Trash button on screen to delete the prior section of the video you do not wish to be included in your clip. 

  6. Drag the progress bar to the location where you would like your clip to end. 

  7. Click the Split button. 

  8. In the timeline, click on the section of the video you do not wish to be included in the clip. Then click the Delete key on your keyboard or the Trash button to delete the latter section of the video. 

  9. Once you have finished editing your clip, click the Save a Copy button. 

  10. If you wish, give your clip a new name. Then, click the Create button. 

  11. Click the Media Page link to view your newly created clip. 

  12. Your clip will need to go through a processing phase. You may need to refresh the page periodically in order to check to see if your clip has finished processing. Once your clip has finished processing, you will be able to view and share your clip.

Allow Others to Copy or Clip your Videos

In VIUTube, you can also allow other VIU employees and students to make a copy or a clip of the VIUTube video that you have shared with them. In order for users to be able to make a copy or a clip of the VIUTube video that you have shared with them, you must share an Unlisted link to the video, and you must enable everyone to create clips from this video in your video's settings.

  1. In your VIUTube My Media area, click on the video you wish to allow users to create clips of. 

  2. Click the ACTIONS button. Select Edit from the dropdown menu. 

  3. Click the Options tab. 

  4. Click the checkbox beside Enable everyone to create clips from this video. 

  5. Click the Save button. 

If the owner of the video has allowed other users to create clips from their media, you will be able to create a copy or a clip of a VIUTube video that you do not own.

Please Note: You will need to be logged into your VIUTube account in order to be able to create a copy or clip of that video. 

  1. Click on the link of the VIUTube video that you do not own but wish to make a clip out of.

  2. If you have not done so already, login to your VIUTube account.

  3. Click the ACTIONS button. Select Create Clip from the dropdown menu.

  4. Trim, edit, and add Hotspots to the video if you wish to do so.

  7. Click the Create button. 

  8. Click the Media Page link to view your newly created clip. 

  9. Your clip will need to go through a processing phase. You may need to refresh the page periodically in order to check to see if your clip has finished processing. Once your clip has finished processing, you will be able to view it and share your clip.
